[Distutils] Setting version from commandline or setup.cfg?

I'm trying to automate my release process from vcs - something like:
run tests ->
fetch current major, minor from branch (e.g. release_1.2) and
revision from tag (e.g. v1.2.1) ->
upload with current major, minor and revision +1 >
tag with such current major, minor and incremented revision.
I'd like to set my version from outside my setup.py file, either via
setup.py or a commandline option - I don't want to execute code in my
setup.py since this usually causes all sort of headaches with missing
Is there any proper way to do it? Might I break other things unexpectedly?
